Subject: Known to be 1/27/68 in Seattle
Going on the assumption that the 1/23 & 1/27 dates are the same show, and that Road Trips 2-2 adds the first set, then overall a decent show. The rest of the Spanish Jam is correctly labeled (on 1/27) but the official release is mislabeled all the way back to the tapes at the venue.
It's known that the show opened with Lovelight, so the setlist would likely be:
It Hurts Me Too
Dark Star>China Cat>The Eleven
Cryptical/Other One>Clementine>New Potato Caboose>Born Cross-Eyed>Spanish Jam>Spanish Frag(miller.97344)
The part from Other One through Spanish Jam is average '68 (with a pretty good Spanish Jam) but I prefer the parts on Road Trips, being above-average '68, particularly the Dark Star>China>Eleven sequence.
So, rating the three parts as a show: C+
(a bit above average for '68).
Beat it On Down the Line-17

Subject: I run through the forests of linear time
Cold ripe persimmons, my sweet Clementine
There's a chill in the meadow, of bottomless time
I go on, I go on, I cannot fill my cup
There's a hole in the bottom, the spring has dried up
I run through the forests of linear time
Chop through the branches and cut through the vines
I'll be back in a moment, though it may take me years
In the lava rock canyons corroded with fears
Of corruptible bodies and grief beyond tears
I'll go on till I hear the sweet voices behind
That I've left for the comfort of cold Clementine

You then got yourself a January '68 show close to two hours :)
Spanish Jam makes this one for me - check out the opening few minutes - positively electrified.
Subject: A+ !!
Subject: Another Early 68 Gem
Subject: White Rabbit
Three stars for the Starship, five for the Dead.
Subject: 1/22 & 1/23 = 1/26 & 1/27
So, using Deadbase and Deadlists I feel that I've gotten enough evidence at least for myself to label this show the 27th, and the show from the 22nd should be the 26th. We may never know with no doubt, but it seems like that's the way it is.
For the show itself, I can't say enough about '68. I can't say I'm quite an expert of the Dead's total repertoire (I've only been hitting the archive and starting my Dead education for about a year) but '68 is always on fire, and this early stuff is as close as we can get to '67, for which very few recordings exist.
This is primal Dead at its best, raw psychadelia coursing through them, coming from a distant star and using these talented musicians as its outlet. The Dead certainly continue to get better and more expert at their instruments and their style later on in their career, more polished, but this is raw psychadelic energy that represents what all of us (at least I do)wish we could've experienced by living in the '60s. Can't go wrong with '68.
Forever Grateful for the love, music, and energy the Dead will always represent.
EDIT: About the other one lyrics, deadlists gives pretty comprehensive details about which lyrics are used when, and while I'm not positive when exactly they started using the Cowboy Neal lyrics, it was before he died (Feb 4), as deadlists attributes the last date using one of (so there must have been a least a few) the early lyrics, and it does say Cowboy Neal, to 02/02/68, before Neal was dead. And I recall hearing this said in other earlier versions too, but I have seen evidence that there were at least a version, or possibly two, of the early lyrics that don't use Cowboy Neal.
The biggest difference in the lyrics is the first verse. I suggest visiting deadlists.com and looking at 2/2, as it says what those lyrics were. Also view 11/11/67 if you'd like, as it evidences use of Cowboy Neal in the lyrics then, as well.
Subject: Cowboy Neal-Other One
Subject: Spanish Jam
Otherwise, I'll give this show five stars, disregarding the brutal lapses, because the snippets we have are just so damned powerful. Primal and electrifying.
Subject: White Rabbit as their generation's "Dark Star"
Another copy of this show is posted as 2/2/68 with an argument that this date is actually incorrect:
Whatever the date, this is a stunning piece of music.
Great sound, great recording, great mix! Thanks Charlie Miller!
Subject: All Killer....No Filler....
I can't emphasis enough how truly great this show is. Five stars, and then some.
More incredible music from a break-through tour for the band. Cryptical/Other One just keeps getting better and this slower, shuffled Clementine is so jazzy and sublime. Upgraded source makes thia a top ten show for '68. (99 pts)

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1968 GRATEFUL DEAD collection. Wonderful performances from the album, "ANTHEM OF THE SUN".
Charlie Miller does it again. Click on his name and collect all his GRATEFUL DEAD Shows, he has impeccable taste.
Remember to also click on the "Deadlists Project" and collect the posters and ticket stubs that sometimes appear for each show.
I love hearing these classic 1968 shows of the GRATEFUL DEAD. Wonderful tone, sound and color to the audio.
"Clementine" is a real treat, 6/8 jam. Reminds me of the Allman Brothers.
Eat, Drink, Be Merry, and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love.
